Room Location

First of all, let me say I love the pictures! I have not stayed at the BC since 2003 and this thread brings back some fond memories as well as making me aware of some new activities that were not available when I was last there. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions about good standard room locations. I have stayed there at least 5 or 6 times and only once did I have a good room location and that was after talking with a CM at check-in about what I enjoyed least about my last stay (mostly walking miles of hallways to get anywhere). Of course, I have no idea now just where that great room was located! What is important to me is easy access to the lobby and Epcot. Two queen size beds (I have read that not all rooms have them) are also essential. Any ideas? Also, has anyone stayed in a first floor room and/or do you know anything about noise levels on that level? Thanks. Marie

Grand Admiral of the Beach Club

Hope nobody minds, but, since there are some photos to help orient new people to the Beach Club, no thread would be complete without a picture of the Grand Admiral of the Beach Club, as my wife & I think of him. I present to you the WONDERFUL, WARM, FRIENDLY, and UNIQUE Art, the Greeter at the Beach Club!


Enjoy the magic that is Art, you'll NEVER regret it!

Hi folks,

I wanted to say thanks for creating this thread! I have stayed at the Beach Club a few times and just LOVE it. Hopefully I can provide another perspective on this wonderful place.

Returning in July!

Cheers

Is Art back to greeting now? When we were there in December we didn't get to meet him because he was having health problems. I hope he is well now.

We saw Art in May and he was back to work Tuesday-Sunday! He was a great man to talk with! He commented on how calm my Dh was on vacation. He told him that others should look at him for an example! He missed him yelling at the kids a minute before we met him!!

I was telling hubby about Y&B last night and showing him the info in the Passporter and Unofficial Guide. He agrees that if we can get it together, we should book Y&B for our next stay.

We loved our standard view room (#3526) overlooking the woods on the far end of the resort. We were a stones throw from the International Gateway and had a beautiful view of the Illuminations fireworks from our full balcony. It was awesome to be able to just walk down two flights of stairs and walk right into Epcot. Here is the layout........

This map is great! I wish BWV had a detailed map like this (other than the one I found here: http://members.aol.com/**********/boardwalk.pdf and here http://www.************travel.com/di.../Boardwalk.pdf).

My DBFF's daughter & grandson are staying in August & I requested a water/pool view for them. I was told they will be overlooking Stormalong Bay (they are staying in a studio). When they arrive, can they ask if a certain room # is available to make sure they get the best view?

Pictures of the Beach Club

One morning we left to head down International Gateway to EPCOT and stopped to take a few pictures along the way. I honestly could have spent half of a day just snapping photos around the resort. It is a very pretty resort and the decorations at Christmas were very homey feeling.










These pictures are taken inside the Lobby. The carousel smelled so lovely. When I smell that candle I have mentioned in my Beach Club Review and close my eyes, it takes me right back into this lobby. Even if you do not stay at the Beach Club during Christmastime, these decorations are not to be missed.
